Washington Studio School offers 20 studio spaces (the Atelier) for working artists, student artists and faculty. Working in the Atelier at WSS provides artists a wonderful opportunity to work either alone or with other advanced artists, sharing models and still life set ups, critiquing each other’s work and discussing issues relating to art, if desired. For the Studio School, the Atelier provides a vital example of the art making process. Many of our atelier members are students in our certificate program or graduates who choose to continue to pursue their lifelong pursuit in creating art at WSS. Atelier members have 24-hour access to their space.

Requirements for Membership

There are two requirements for prospective Atelier Members:
(1) an approval of current Atelier members, and
